Yes, I would currently prefer the Suopuhe Festival module to eSpeak even in 
speechd-el I've just sent the eSpeak author feedback about the Finnish(). 
HOwever, I did not get Festival working. The thing is Festival shows fine 
via Gnome-Speech in Orca. But when I use speech-dispatcher in Orca, only 
eSPeak is listed. Naturally trying to switch to Festival in speechd-el says 
nothing, too.

I have edited the speech dispatcher config file uncommenting the line to add 
festival and have checked the Festival config under modules, too, though 
there was very little that's relevant to end users in the latter file. What 
could be wrong? I keep reading about having to auto start a Festival server 
but how to do it using Gnome sessions and isn't it already running? I 
guessed, without checking, that the server must be running, since Festival 
can speak via Gnome-speech. I have not checked the processes since there's 
no hotkey for quickly .launching the Gnome task manager. and I Just haven't 
gone and looked into the system monitor yet. I should have, on second 

Hope this clarifies.

With kind regards Veli-Pekka T?til?
